UNP > Shorting once it failed to hold open with the market rising. Also repeated bids on the tape failed to hold the 69.50 level. It fell too quickly so was unable to take more shares.

LRCX > Spread was variable on this so needed to be careful. Long on pullback as it held up above previous day's high.

QCOM > Stock was weak and holding below open. First trade was maybe too early, but it failed to get above the open so I had a chance to re-short.

Trying to fight market too much I think.
AFL was a decent mover, but I didn't get back on board after a failed trade.

Hello.
I am looking at your trading and like your discipline (sometimes it is hard for me to have days with no trades).
But some questions (just interesting for me).
-Is it so necessary to trade news stocks only and the most volotile candles in first minutes? Why you don`t wait when stocks calm down?
-There are stocks with good technical charts. Why you don`t trade technical setups?
-And why you limit yourself with first 30-60 min only? There are often good setups later.
- Don`t you want to change your mehod (to trade after first 30 min market opens) and combine your tape reading and chart reading skills? I think with your discipline and patience it will be easy to select good setups and trade them.

As one of setup examples that I search and like to trade: consolidations with volume spikes (give clear stops) in first retracement above some level (often with relative strength/weakness). Today`s HLF was good as example.

Thanks for posting.

Technical setups trading : tried this for a couple of years : never got any consistency.
Hence trading news stocks: because they "should" move and the added tape reading gives some 'edge'.

I have found a lot of time that after the first 30mins the 'major' move has already happened and the rest is just sideways chop. Of course this isn't always the case, so you need some sort of filtering mechanism to determine which ones are going to trend for the day. I tend to leave it alone if I can't find a trade in first 30 mins or so.

So this is just my experience.

If you are having success ..stick with it.
There is more than one way to trade the market.

Thanks.

could you explain your process for narrowing down your list of stocks you are watching based on news... i trade a similar momentum style at the open except that i am scanning for movers, active stocks at the open and pre-market... it would be nice not to be rushing through charts and scans at the open.

One thing i like about your trading is that you buy during pullbacks. I usually wait for a high to be set during the first 5 minutes and i like to see sellers to come in. I then buy as a new high made... your entries are more risk advantaged than mine and i will look to see how i can incorporate this in the future.

Hello.

I don't do any scanning (premarket or after).
I have a list of stocks which have earnings (Briefing.com and/or Finviz).
I usually only consider those between $15 and $100.
Also 10day avg volume > 750k.
Also daily ATR over 75c >
Also I ignore large gappers (over 8%)

During the height of earnings season ; the stocks with news is huge. So as you say , there is a need for limiting what to watch. Typically I use the ones with best volume and also stocks which I have traded before and which gave decent smooth moves. Also I keep some stocks which are behaving opposite to the market.

Usually I try to aim for a watchlist of around 10 stocks.

Thanks

The BMY and GG trades were just scalp try outs, so haven't attached the charts for those.
